American Don is an album by Don Caballero, a Pittsburgh-based math rock
band, released on Touch and Go Records in 2000. It was recorded by Steve                                American Don
American Don is Don Caballero's fifth full-length release and fourth proper studio
album, but many fans consider it the group's final album due to the falling out
between Ian Williams and Damon Che, the group's creative core, after the
release of the album. Che is actually the only original member of Don Caballero to
play on this and all subsequent recordings.
The photos of car accidents in the CD booklet proved prophetic, as this lineup of
Don Caballero disbanded after being involved in a van accident while touring in
support of American Don. Singer/guitarist Fred Weaver was the opening act on
this tour and his exhaustive tour diary was published in issue 16 of Chunklet as
"The Dark Final Days of Don Caballero".
